  1. The Long Road

From the recording Snow on Northern Hills

Dave Harris & David Fee

Lyrics

It feels like I am getting nowhere fast
And I am passed by every single day
But when that darker sun begins
to beat down on my back
I remember what my granpa used to say
On the long road, why the sad face?
Just remember it’s a slow race

They say that you should walk before you run
But now its getting later in the day
And when I’m tempted just to sit and watch that crazy world go by
I remember what my granpa used to say
On the long road, why the sad face?
Just remember it’s a slow race

No reason to rush no reason to speed
No need to kill yourself with living
Do what you can, take what you need
To your own heart you can be more forgiving

And when the mountains
reach into the mist
and my legs just want to walk the other way
and as the hard rain starts to fall
down upon my aching head
I remember what my granpa used to say
On the long road, why the sad face?
Just remember it’s a slow race
